• Dental hygiene
The aligners are removable, which makes it much easier for you to clean your teeth and aligners easily throughout the process.
The smooth plastic makes the aligners easy and comfortable to wear.
• The aligners are made of clear plastic, and they are virtually invisible when you wear them.
In most cases, Invisalign can be completed in just 12 to 18 months. Invisalign Express can speed the process even more with treatment times averaging about six months.
Invisalign is easy to use and highly effective. You will change your aligners on your own every two weeks, which means that you will have also less chair-time to interfere with your busy schedule.
As with any treatment, Invisalign can have some disadvantages. First, it is not appropriate for all types of orthodontic issues. Some complex cases may need to be treated with conventional braces or a combination of braces and Invisalign. Additionally, your ability to follow treatment recommendations will play a big role in your overall satisfaction. If you lose your aligners, fail to wear them according to your schedule or have other problems, you may not get the straight smile you want. In this situation, we may even have to have your treatment plan adjusted.
